I guess that’s why they call it the blues…

Sorry. Couldn’t help that one. So today, as I’m sure you won’t have failed to have heard is, the most depressing day of the year. Can’t imagine why as I look outside and it’s pouring with rain, howling a gale.

Blue jeans for me, for many, are a fail safe wardrobe item. As documented a gazillion times, in our often more relaxed way of dressing, jeans can offer more of a level playing field, and give the hi-low edge to dressing – dress up with a jacket or blazer and heels… dress down with trainers and a biker.

I am not a jeans expert, I don’t have as many pairs as I’d like (!). But I do know that I’m in need of some new boyfriend jeans. I’m going to check out John Lewis’s And/Or range as I’ve heard (via the powers of Instagram; all hail) they are worth a try for those of us blessed with more padding on our derrieres and curvaceous thighs.

I ‘must’ make it my mission to re look at Topshop denim, always so many great reviews… just not sure its cut for me. I love these below, so many colour and size options available… but I’m after a slightly smarter finish… I’m less into the distressed look… leg oozing through a ‘distressed’ hole is, well, frankly, distressing to all.

I’ve been a fan of Uniqlo denim for years…  Would be very happy to give these boyfriend jeans a go, especially at this price…

Having said I didn’t really want a distressed look… I changed my mind… love the raw hem… and with a more glam/sharp boot as above. I’m sold.

This jumpsuit has been calling me from Mango… I LOVE a jumpsuit, as some people wear dresses, I turn to a jumpsuit. Mango £69.99

And from the back… I love this 70’s feel – I’d wear this with more of a rounded toe stack heel boot…

My old and trusted Gap denim jacket which must be 15 years + old, is in need of a replacement/update/job-share. This military inspired one from Monsoon, £59 is gorgeous

Staying military… these skinny leg trousers from Gap £14.99, were £49.95 in the sale could do a fine job…
